On April 9, 2014
VivaCell-MTS and Fuller Center for Housing Armenia  joined in a home build in the borderline village of Vazashen, Tavush Region to mark the official launch of the new project sponsored by VivaCell-MTS addressed to assisting 25 more low income families from bordering villages of Tavush and Armavir regions to build and renovate their homes.

Today Armenia’s bordering villages face critical challenges, such as the need for decent housing, the lack of jobs, which, in its turn brings forth emigration, low natural reproduction that threatens the existence of these villages. The problem is vital both for security reasons and for the overall economy of the country. To provide assistance, to lessen critical challenges the bordering villages face and to make the borderline areas of Armenia a place to live and raise a family VivaCell-MTS makes an investment of 55 million AMD and Fuller Center for Housing Armenia undertakes the implementation of a new program through which 10 families from bordering villages will be assisted to complete their half-built homes and 15 will be assisted to renovate their homes.
Fuller Center for Housing Armenia and Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) Join Forces to Help Low Income Families in Need of Safe and Decent Homes

altThe Fuller Center for Housing Armenia (FCHA) and Republic of Artsakh have reached an agreement to assist low-income families build safe, decent, and affordable homes.
We invited the Fuller Center for Housing to assist our efforts to bring greater stability to the families of our region. Our government is ready to provide with maximum organizational support to this new program. Therefore, I call upon all donors to support the Artsakh Project of the Fuller Center for Housing,” stated Mr. Ara Haroutyunyan, Prime Minister of Republic of Artsakh.

Over the past five years, FCHA has tried to initiate a home building program in Artsakh. However, there were number of challenges that prevented this plan from becoming a reality. In August 2013, by coincidence Artak Beglaryan, the official spokesperson for Haroutyunyan, and Gohar Palyan,
FCHA’s development director, were in the same group of hikers who trekked to Mt. Ararat. Climbing to the summit at 5,165 m (16,945 ft), they proudly raised the flags of Armenia, Artsakh and FCHA, and made a commitment to begin working together to build homes in Artsakh.

With more than five years of experience providing housing to homeless and needy families, FCHA is very pleased to establish the Artsakh Project in collaboration with the government. The goal is to expand FCHA’s impact by implementing its successful housing model and sharing its construction expertise in the region.

Fuller Center for Housing Armenia to Build 100 Homes 
in Honor of 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide

Unique Commemoration of 100th Anniversary of Genocide Launched in Armenia

alt The Fuller Center for Housing Armenia (FCHA) announced that it will build and renovate 100 homes between now and December 2015 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.  The project, called “Honoring 100 Years by Saving 100 Families,” will be driven by charitable contributions to give low-income and homeless families a safe and decent home, while emphasizing the importance of families remaining in Armenia on a permanent basis. 
Armenians worldwide are welcomed to support this project and honor the memories of their loved ones who were martyrs or survivors of the Armenian Genocide.  A donation of $10,500 will sponsor a single, completed home. The beneficiary family will receive a personalized, commemorative plaque inscribed with the donor’s choice of message or dedication. When a donation is less than a single home sponsorship, FCHA will combine the contributions it receives with other gifts and assign a beneficiary family when $10,500 has been collected. All donors will receive a profile of the beneficiary family with photos showing their current living conditions.  When construction is completed, all donors will receive a certificate from FCHA and photos of the new house.
